Forum: classic_tv Subject: List of surviving 1948 television episodes, expanded and arranged in order of air date.

This list was compiled through several sources, including the Library of Congress, UCLA Film and Television Archive, Paley Center for Media, and others. It is likely incomplete. As you may correctly presume, some of these series have further extant episodes from other years (for example, many 1949 episodes of "The Morey Amsterdam Show" survive)
